Good for you. I wish we were so fortunate! Everything here is dead except the parsley and sage in the flower boxes, and a lovely little thyme plant that is sitting on the kitchen table. Even the basil plant I brought in died, but I never have any luck with trying to overwinter basil.
The bamboo we planted along the driveway a few years ago is doing very well.

I have heard that bamboo is vigorous. I planted some basil seed in a little 5 inch pot in January of 2010. Set it outside during the growing season.
I harvested leaves all summer, brought it in and it has grown like gangbusters in and outdoors ever since. It has even been knocked off ledges and put back in the pot. It still survives.
Just harvested a bunch for #1 daughter when she was here cooking tomato sauce for lasagna. It is the geneovese(?spelling?) variety. I potted it in Mels mix and give it a dose of dynagrow once in a while, and have to give it just a little water daily cause it is so big and the pot is so small.
